2011 Skandia Sail For Gold Regatta    


The 2011 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, the sixth running of the regatta which is held at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy in Dorset, Great Britain, is the sixth regatta of the 2010-11 edition of the ISAF Sailing World Cup. In 2010 the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta welcomed a record entry of over 975 sailors and the event is expected to go from strength to strength in the lead up to the 2012 Olympic Games. Whilst Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta is a relatively new event, many people will remember the hugely successful and popular Weymouth Olympic Week which ran from 1972 until 1988. Based from Weymouth Beach there was sailing for all the Olympic sailing events. The present Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, however, is being run on a totally different scale from WPNSA. Skandia have become a renowned supporter of sailing events in Great Britain. As well as being title sponsor for the Sail for Gold Regatta since its inception in 2006, they also sponsored Cowes Week for 14 years.

UK Sport is the other major contributor to the Regatta with money coming from UK National Lottery funding.
